U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro has cemented himself as a Superstar to watch out for in the Royal Rumble Match, but his first step toward the mad melee didn’t exactly go off without a hitch. Despite his best efforts, the Herculean champion fell victim to Randy Orton in a Beat the Clock Challenge that will allow the Superstar who sets the fastest time in victory to pick his entry number in the Royal Rumble Match.

The Viper came into the contest with some scouting under his belt already, having faced Cesaro on WWE Main Event last week in a contest that was interrupted by The Shield. But the arrogant U.S. Champion clearly did his homework as well, attempting to bully Orton into fatigue right off the bat. Cesaro seemed to have victory in hand after striking Orton with a very European uppercut that left Orton out on his feet, but it turned out The Viper was only playing possum. While Cesaro preoccupied himself with the clock, Orton took his time to regain his bearings after the jaw-rattling attack, finally letting loose with an RKO on a distracted Cesaro to set the Beat the Clock pace at 11:36.
